When the movie Rambo: First Blood Part Two came out in 1985, it was banned in Vietnam. But the latest in the series starring Sylvester Stallone has passed Vietnamese state censors and is being shown in multiplexes from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City.

The movie is banned in Myanmar, formerly known as Burma, where the latest story is set.
